Originally the old shepherds huts, Packhorse and Homespur have undergone conscious renovations which has seen them maintain their charm while being fitted with modern design and comforts.

The first cottage is a nod back to the past, with the walls of Packhorse having been decorated by the shepherds with mustering times, and notes to each other, some dating back to 1941. The house sleeps up to 6 people in two bedrooms. The bunk and double rooms make for an ideal spot for a family. The kitchen is a chef's dream and the sprawling deck is the perfect spot to bask in the Central Otago sun or enjoy a beer at the end of the day spent adventuring.

Homespur is perhaps Central Otago's best kept secret. The studio style cottage is cosy and makes for a snug family getaway or a romantic rural escape. Housing a large king bed and a set of bunks, the configuration can cater for both styles. In the Winter, Homespur's roaring fire will keep you toasty, and in the summer, you can enjoy the best view of the sun going down.

The station offers an endless list of activities for beginners or advanced guests. From hunting, to fishing, hiking, mountain biking etc... Ask us for more information
